I'd guess it's just a matter of ROI:  most uses cases for LC Server are 
well satisfied by the Community edition, and since Server is a 
command-line-only app, they'd need to come up with some special scheme 
in that engine build to handle licence enforcement.  So instead they 
just put the license enforcement in the Web site's account page, and 
only a very small handful of people ever need it anyway so it seems a 
prudent use of their time.
